  • Mount Dana and Gibbs in Black in White

    Mount Dana and Gibbs in Black in White

    Last week as I was on the BACKPACKER Magazine Forum somebody started a “Show Us Your Reflections”. Going through my archives I came across several, including a color version that I posted in 2009, A Day in Yosemite. Thought I’d re-process it and convert it to a black and white.

  • Cool and Calm

    Cool and Calm

    Before I packed up my camera stuff for the evening, I walked over to the spillway at Convict Lake. By that time all of the photographers had left so I had the place to myself. Since it was dusk, the colors were more blue than anything else, so I converted this to a black and […]

  • Glacier Point Yosemite

    Glacier Point Yosemite

    It’s now round two! Going through my recent photos from my Yosemite trip from a few weeks ago. This was one of the first photos I took when I first got to Glacier Point. Sunset was still about 45 minutes away, but I really liked the “electric clouds” here. I liked the colors here, but […]

  • The Surface of the Moon

    The Surface of the Moon

    From my latest trip to the Great Valley Grasslands State Park, I saw this sandbar and I thought it kind of looked like the surface of the moon.

  • Clouds Over the Kuna Crest

    Clouds Over the Kuna Crest

    Seems that clouds are a rare thing these days, at least when I’m in Yosemite trying to take some cool photos. I was happy to see a bunch of clouds forming that afternoon. Even though the conditions were still somewhat harsh (photography-wise), I thought I’d take a few frames and convert the best one into […]

  • Small Roadside Waterfall

    Small Roadside Waterfall

    After I was done taking pictures of Mammoth Peak at sunrise, I took a drive past Tioga Pass and found some shade to rest. I found this small, roadside waterfall with some ice on the branches interesting and thought it would look good as a black and white.

  • Mammoth Peak in Black and White

    Mammoth Peak in Black and White

    I posted the color version yesterday on my blog and some of the landscape photography forums. A few people suggested that I convert the color image to a black and white. So here it is! As a side-note. I wasn’t happy with the near-noon conditions of this image. On Monday, Tioga Pass was closed due […]

  • Reflecting on Poly Dome

    Reflecting on Poly Dome

    There wasn’t any WOW factor when I took this, other than the fact that Tenaya Lake was still calm! Within a few minutes, the wind started picking up and no more calm lake. I processed a color version, but I decided to do a black and white as well. My preference is for the black […]

  • Sunrise Over Mount Gibbs in Black and White

    Sunrise Over Mount Gibbs in Black and White

    The sunrise colors that morning wasn’t “epic”, but I like the clouds forming that morning over Mount Gibbs. Since it lacked any colors, I converted this to a black and white instead. I think it really works, what are your thoughts?

  • Bridalveil Falls in Black and White

    Bridalveil Falls in Black and White

    Lacking a lot of colors, converting this image of Bridalveil Falls to black in white seemed obvious to me.
